Montauk

First trip to the North side of Montauk (July 2014).  Was great fun.

Caught a short Striper about 24 inches on a Bernzy Yellow Howdy. Then caught 4 Blues. Lost a bunch of Blues. First time I wore Korkers, a must as the bottom is rocky and covered with slippery stuff.  Only fell one time. Had an incredible trip. For a first trip out that way the calm conditions treated me well. Had the place to myself for awhile.

Some pics from my first trip there

After the first trip there I was hooked. There are so many areas to fish from the north side to the south side and the town beaches. I’m hooked. Fishing all the different structure on all the beaches is crazy fun for me.

Beach was covered as tide went out

Great looking water but there was an enormous amount of weeds around, had solid South East wind, 10-20 MPH.
